Poet Elizabeth Gordon McKim/ Taylor Hall and Oltanie Charles
July 19, 2023
This week on Cultural Manifesto, listen to the latest edition of Finding Etheridge with Mat Davis, a new series exploring the people and places connected to the Indianapolis poet Etheridge Knight. Mat’s guest will be the poet Elizabeth Gordon McKim, Etheridge Knight’s partner and companion during the final years of his life.
McKim lives in Lynn, Massachusetts. She recently visited Indianapolis for the unveiling of a new Etheridge Knight mural on Massachusetts Avenue. During the 1980s, Knight and McKim lived together on Mass Ave at the Barton Tower housing project. McKim will discuss her connection to Etheridge Knight, and her latest book “Elizabetheridge: A Memoir in Poetry”.
We’ll also listen to new releases from two rising stars in the Indianapolis music scene: Taylor Hall and Oltanie Charles.
